Whee! Once again, I must congratulate all of you for the successful 1.2
release. We've only needed 2 bugfix releases, and all the issues were
really minor. It really sounds like a Samba stable release :)

Very cool, too. This should boost the development a bit.

What are the plans for 1.4, right now? On the top of my head, there are
two or three patches lying around which could be considered: DB's UTF-8
patch would rock; there's the repeat last search patch from Wouter and
there's this Debian bug that it'd be cool to fix:
  * #178423: nano should ask a confirmation before saving a file to a new name

We had talked about revamping colour support to try to make it faster...
and that's all I can think about right now.
